On May 14th, citizens, police officers and members of Montrose Crime Stoppers went before the City Council and asked for a ballot initiative in November that would raise sales tax revenue for public safety. A sharp increase in petty and property crime has taxed an already shorthanded Montrose Police Department. KVNF News got the details from Montrose Police Chief Tom Chinn and Montrose Crime Stoppers head John W. Nelson.
